LONDON and CHICAGO, August 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Bluefin Solutions today announced that it is offering its clients access to SAP S/4HANA® in the public cloud, as part of the lighthouse reference program with SAP. This provides customers with full access to a vast range of SAP® products when moving to SAP S/4HANA, from the highly flexible and controlled on-premise version of SAP S/4HANA to the subscription-based SAP S/4HANA Cloud, which offers fast deployment and reduced total cost of ownership.
As one of only a handful of partners throughout the UK, Germany and the USA to have been selected by SAP to join the lighthouse reference program, Bluefin is in a position to help shape the future direction of SAP S/4HANA Cloud alongside the SAP product team.
Whilst there are many ERP solutions available in the market, SAP solutions, both on premise and in the cloud, can be powered by the SAP HANA® platform. SAP HANA provides the foundation for innovative applications that take advantage of an in-memory database and calculation engine, allowing companies to conduct complex planning, forecasting and simulation based on real-time data.
Bluefin itself has recently begun the move to SAP S/4HANA in the public cloud. James Appleby, Bluefin's CEO said,"As our business model adjusts to reflect our clients' needs for increasingly digital-centric services, we need a digital core that enables us to run our business in real time. Having built a sophisticated set of systems over 14 years, Bluefin recognizes that it is time for us to re-innovate and re-imagine our future. SAP S/4 HANA is critical to enabling the real-time business, and will enable us to lead, manage and run our business much more effectively."
Ross Wainwright, global head of SAP S/4HANA Cloud at SAP, explained, "Bluefin has been a leading SAP partner for 9 years, and this new focus on SAP S/4HANA Cloud is a natural extension to its offerings. As we continue to see midsize and large organizations rapidly move their ERP platforms to the cloud to accelerate their digital transformation strategies, partners like Bluefin will be critical in assisting clients with business process analysis, project planning and deployment support."
